    Next Chelsea Manager

    Can't wait for Monday. Maurizio Sarri to be announcedas Chelsea Manager on Thursday. Koulibaly is the first on the list for the market. (Tuttosport) #CFC

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    on loan, or with a buy back price maybe. I hope if he were to leave, we learn from previous mistakes.

    Next Chelsea Manager

    Pre season starts in 10 days. So it should be over one way or another by then. I really cant see conte coming back for preseason before getting sacked before the season starts. I suppose you never know with chelsea. I was really excited for sarri coming in, but this whole saga has really dragged on. I understand football is a complicated business, but 6 weeks to change a manager especially, one with a buy out clause seems excessive. In the end, we might have saved about £3m, but surely it would've been more productive to have paid the release clause, so sarri could've got himself settled before preseason, and the club could've put it's time and energy into purchasing and selling players, and sorting out contracts. With the window closing at the start of the season, we seem to have a mountain of work to be done in a short space of time. I'm expecting more dead line day deals, and players taking time to adapt having not had a preseason with us. Hopefully with fixtures appearing quite kind, it might not be too detrimental to our season.

    No offence taken YB, You know what it's like on this forum though, 3 games is enough to determine the future of any player.

    What for? Honesty is the best policy I am told YB.

    I think golovin would be much better in the hamsik role assuming sarri comes in. Good movement, quick feet, great technique, good weight of pass, and strikes the ball well with both feet. He is slight but i dont see that as that big of an issue. Plenty of smaller players have excelled over here, admittedly tonight is only the 3rd game I've seen him play, but he does seem fairly tenacious, as alot of eastern European players are. For £25m he could be a really smart purchase.

    As much as I would love to see the academy products come though, I don't want us to pass on potentially would class players. Golovin probably fits that bracket, he looks silky smooth, like a young modric when he played further forward. The price being touted is very reasonable in today's market aswell, but on the flip side, russians haven't tended to do well in England, however it is a small sample size. Hopefully we will see a switch in strategy again, and we look to bring in younger players with high potential, because the squad is full of 'squad players in their mid to late twenties that will be difficult to move on.

    Willian

    I don't trust us to spend that £60m wisely though, so that's why I would prefer a swap deal. I also think £60m is about half of what we would get for him. It is just a number plucked from thin air. I think it would be £40m tops.

    Willian

    I would only let him go to United if we got martial in return. He is still a good player, capable of world class performances. He isn't consistent though and he never will be.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    The main that impressed me last night, was the intensity and urgency he played with. It is an area of his game that is often critised, but he was really trying to make things happen. I thought he should've been on about 5 mins into the second half, when it became clear that alli wasn't fit. Hopefully he gets a start against Panama as it would be stupid to risk alli in that game, when there is Belgium and potentially knock out games around the corner.

    never a pen. It looks like morata has been given England shooting lessons. Should be winning comfortably. Can't see us not going on to win this second half.

    He looked very good. So did lozano for Mexico, I would to see them both in a chelsea shirt.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    it's easy to look at Costa's perfomance in regret, but we didn't get that from him often enough. Far too many matches he was sucked into being the panto villian getting into petty squabbles, and rolling around on the floor. When he is putting himself about, holding the ball up, and playing it simple, he is one of the best strikers in the world. I think his best period for us, was during that 14 game win steak, when he was going through matches, not getting booked, bullying defenders, and hurt teams where it counts, by sticking the ball in the net. He was never really settled here, but it was a pity the manner in which he left, and I think conte deserves criticism for that. It's just a shame morata has come in, moaned twice and much, and misses 3 or 4 times as many chances as costa ever did.

    It's great watch diego when his mind is in the right place, he can bully any defender in the world and his finishing is world class. Just a pity he didn't quite settle here, and his temperament let him down too often in my opinion.
